My cabinets are not as dark as espresso but still a relatively dark brown color. Style is generally transitional, all door handles & kitchen fixtures are oil rubbed bronze, appliances are SS. Would you do ORB pulls/knobs on cabinets or a satin nickel or something else?
In my previous build I chose white trim, doors, and cabinets w/ satin nickel hardware. In my current build I’m choosing wood stained everything. By default I was looking at satin nickel, but I’m wondering if I might like the subtle look of dark hardware on dark cabinets. I’m having trouble finding

Still other solid oil rubbed bronze colors are similar to a dark brown, like Cliffside’s Old Antique. Brown is a great color for a kitchen, especially if you’re painting the wood cabinets some other color. It’s an earthy tone that connotes wealth (think about chocolate – people even say that it’s ‘rich’).

When you choose painted Dark Cabinets Oil Rubbed Bronze Hardware, they will usually be assembled with materials that accept and hold paint well, such as poplar, veneered plywood or MDF. The key is having a nice, flat surface, free of knots and heavy grain patterns. Some cabinet manufacturers perform all the finishing work on their cabinets in-house. At Canyon Creek, an elaborate system of spray booths, ovens and an overhead drying line make it possible to finish hundreds of cabinets a day. Cabinets leave the plant boxed and ready for installation.
The kind of paint used on your Dark Cabinets Oil Rubbed Bronze Hardware will impact how they look, how they wear, how much they chip and whether they are resistant to water. When purchasing a stock or semi-custom cabinet, ask what kind of paint is used and if there are other options. There are many paint options: oil- or water-based paints that may or may not include alkyd resins to help with curing, and even solid-body conversion varnishes. Having an extended conversation about the options and their impacts (off-gassing, longevity etc.) might be helpful. Earlier this year I looked into using a zero-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint on some custom cabinets, but received less-than-positive feedback from the paint shop about using it. Using a low-VOC paint instead yielded good results. Paint companies are constantly working on formulating coatings with fewer VOCs, and as time goes on, they will only get better, so look at all of your options.
